Six Sigma Training Prices 2018

Six Sigma Value

Six Sigma training can be divided into two categories: Six Sigma and Lean Six Sigma.

Each offers techniques and methodologies to improve business processes, with Six Sigma focusing on reducing business ‘defects’ (defined here as anything that offers no value to customers) and Lean Six Sigma encouraging a minimisation of wasted time and materials.

This guide to Six Sigma Training costs will outline potential costs for courses and is based on the latest prices provided by Approved Index suppliers.

Moving Between Levels and Other Courses

Rather than going for a Black Belt course straight away, you might prefer to avoid such heavy financial and time commitments by taking courses incrementally. For example, it is possible to upgrade from Lean Six Sigma Foundation to Lean Six Sigma Green Belt for around £2,500 +VAT, whilst upgrading from Lean Six Sigma Green Belt to Black Belt costs about £3,500 +VAT.

Other modules available from Six Sigma training companies include courses on advanced statistical methods, change management or Lean Six Sigma for Innovation and Design. Courses range in price from £400 to £3,000 but by the time you need to take such courses you’ll probably have a greater understanding of what you’re looking for.

Six Sigma Training for Teams

Six Sigma training courses, including Lean, are available on a bespoke basis for companies looking to train several staff members at the same time. This will obviously negate the need for travel and accommodation but does mean that you need the space and facilities to host the training, as well as allowing for the trainer’s expenses. Significant savings can be made through open courses however, so we recommend looking around for several quotes to find the best deal.

Incidental Six Sigma Training Costs

Some courses, especially at the Black Belt level, require you to purchase computer programmes for statistical analysis (most commonly MINITAB). This can cost up to £1,000 so be sure to check.
